The other day while standing at the kitchen sink washing some breakfast dishes, a bright red male northern cardinal decided to land on the bird bath and take a bath. It was quite fun to watch, but I was unable to get a photo of him through the window, so I found one on the Internet.


Later that same day, a cedar waxwing showed up to take a drink. This time the blinds were open but in my haste to reach for the camera, I frightened him away! But he did look just like this one that I also found on the Internet.



And the last photo today is of Amber ready to take a dip in the pool to cool off.
And this picture, I was able to take.....just before she jumped all the way in and got me all wet. So, I got cooled off too! LOL

Birds are such lovely creatures. I have a special place in my heart for birds.

The pool looks like fun.

Just goes to show you...the best photos are the ones you can get yourself, even if you get wet in the process!
